Honestly, I've been in the search for headphones for about a year now. Everytime I confirm my choice, either I learn something new or take a break from researching (and start all over). I recently (2-3 months ago lol) came to the conclusion of superlux hd668b and neewer nw700. However, I am leaning towards a headset (like the arctis 5) because:
1) Aesthetic - I don't know if I have a problem or something because I know I'm going to be wearing it and not seeing it 99% of the time but I just want something appealling, I'm just that type of person. I like the look of the neewer nw700 especially in white but the superlux is SO UGLY. The arctis 5 is just fantastic in looks. Yes I like RGB (not obsessed though maybe just in pc case and peripherals ). I know some of you might hate me for that but I mean everyone has different stuff they're attracted to and they enjoy :)
2) convenience - this is also a BIG factor. Having 1 cable is amazing and having a less sensitive mic is also great (I know also about the modmic but that's 2 wires but ruins aesthetics when used with superlux). I know mic quality will be worse but I'm not doing anything professional, just chatting to friends and people. The fact that I can simply plug the headset in instead of setting up mic, plugging headphones, getting adapter for ps4 is a huge negative.
3) I know audiophiles will agree with me, my audio standards are extremely low. Ive only used the apple earbuds for the iPhone 6s, akg IEMs for the Samsung galaxy S8 and the default earbud (1 ear lol) for the PS4. Honestly, I don't like the sound of the ps4 earbud, don't remember the iPhone but the akg ones I actually like. Based off of that, I feel that going significantly higher than my current standards will mean I won't enjoy my IEMs. This could also mean that I am more likely to like the arctis 5 because I have low standards where as other audiophiles can detect every sound wave.
So, I know this is long (don't know how long as I'm writing on my phone and know it's a lot different on pc) but I could really use some of your help. Could you answer a few questions of mine? Are these sufficient reasons to buy a headset (oh yeah aesthetics is also why I was drawn away from the hyper X cloud 2 ) ? Any good headset recommendations under £80? What do you think I should do? Am I being irrational with my reasoning? Love hearing your opinions and open my mind.
